Companhia de Dança takes on Pushkin's classic novel, Eugene Onegin

Tackling any major revolutionary Russian novel is brave. Dissecting Pushkin’s main characters from Eugene Onegin? We call that ballsy. But leave it to Brazil’s leading dance company to stretch out the passion, rejection, lust, and love and take it to beautiful toe-pointing heights. Set to Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, and contemporary music, Companhia de Dança’s Tatyana is a visual and aural feast. A pleasure for all the senses. ‘Colker’s choreography is full of athletic extremes, with dancers falling from high branches or diving into leaps and lifts. Her company move with daredevil ease, stretching and tangling their limbs with acrobatic force.’ - The Independent. Seats allocated on arrival. Face value £16-£30, you pay £15, saving up to £15.
